New ranking from Newtype I believe.
1. Kirito (Sword Art Online)
2. Archer (Fate Stay/Night)
3. Emiya Shirou (Fate Stay/Night)
1. Saber (Fate Stay/Night)
2. Sento Isuzu (Amagi Brilliant Park)
3. Asuna (Sword Art Online)
4. Ange (Cross Ange)
5. Sinon (Sword Art Online)
Quite surprised to see Ange so high, outside of that nothing unexpected Would be much appreciated if someone could fill in the blanks.
Bellri is 4th?
It reminds me that I have yet to watch the last episode, he might have done something cool.
Sinon is not a bad character, far from it, but I'm sure that the cat ears made their job to increase her popularity.
(Or not, if the 3 beside the 5 is her previous position)

Wow, Ikari and Rei. Those names are rather nostalgic. Even Asuka and Nagisa make appearances.
Is there an NGE OVA or movie coming out soon, or came out recently? That's the only reason I can think of that these names came back. Or they're just simply iconic.
Otherwise not a surprising list. What I am surprised about though is the popularity of Gundam Reconguista despite how poorly it's rated on MAL and whatnot, and how many people seem to slam it. From what I remember, I did like Bellri and Aida though.
Then we had an announcement for a full HD release of all previous Evangelion works.Quote:
And then it's the 20th birthday of the series, plus the year it actually plays in XDQuote:
So considering all that it's no surprise that we have multiple Evangelion characters in the chart.Quote:
